The offensive linemen had a strong showing in Beaverton, Ore., at The Opening at times dominating the action. Cameron Robinson was the clear-cut OL MVP and earned the top-spot. Check out who else made the list. Scout.com picks its Top Five...

1. Cameron Robinson (6'5, 330) - Monroe (La.) West Monroe
Robinson came in to the event as one of the list highly rated prospects in the country, No. 3 overall. And he did nothing but improve his stock, which is an impressive feat due to the fact only two players are rated in front of him. Prototype tackle with great feet and strong at the point of attack. Decision will come down between Alabama and LSU.

2. Damien Mama (6'4, 370) - Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco
Mama has the arm reach to play offensive tackle but is built like an offensive guard. He is very competitive and had some of the camps most memorable one on one reps. Plays with a real nasty streak that you can instantly appreciate. Good in pass pro and run blocking. Considering national level offers.

3. J.C. Hassenauer (6'3, 292) - Woodbury (Minn.) East Ridge
One of the most pleasant surprises of the camp. He is very quick off of the ball and has the power to fend off the strongest defensive tackles. Plays with good pad leverage, staying low and balanced. Can also handle the quicker DL. The rich get richer. Committed to Alabama.

4. Toa Lobendahn (6'3, 293) - La Habra (Cali.)
Particularly good and most importantly very consistent in all of the OL/DL drills. He also got stronger as the camp progressed, hitting his peak in the final set of one-on-one drills where he won three straight reps against Andrew Brown, Scout.com's No. 1 DT. He is committed to USC.

5. Roderick Taylor (6'3, 323) - Jackson (Miss.) Callaway
Mammoth guard prospect who was the only offensive linemen to top a 100 Sparq rating with a 104.4. He also tied with the top overall 40-yard dash for an OL with a 5.22. Performed well in drills and one-on-ones. Not only strong, but athletic. A great combo. High interest in Alabama and Mississippi.
